It’s the most popular attraction in Barcelona, so finding cheap restaurants near Sagrada Familia may require some Gaudi-like greatness to come up with a few options.
That said, I’ve found some great affordable set menus and tasty bocadillos to keep your travels within budget.
⚠️ 2023 Warning ⚠️: It’s now mandatory to book your Sagrada Familia tickets in advance.
The only way to guarantee your spot is by booking Sagrada Familia tickets online:
Bar Bodega Can Ros: Located a 15 minute walk from the Sagrada Familia, they make excellent bocadillos both hot and cold. At lunchtime they also offer a set menu for €11.40 which includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Bodega Can Ros is located at Carrer Roger de Flor 303.
Bar Restaurante el Xuletò: A neighborhood restaurant popular with locals. El Xuletò simply offers solid, honest Catalan home cooking at a reasonable price. At lunch you’ll find a set menu at a respectable cost € 12.90. They also prepare bocadillos with ham, tortilla or sausage for €4.00 – €5.00. The restaurant is located in Carrer de Sicilia 263, 5 minutes from the Sagrada Familia.
Meson Los Ancares Bar Restaurant: This bar/restaurant is what Catalans would call a “de toda la vida”, which loosely translates to neighborhood joint. They offer homemade local cuisine and a €12 lunch menu that includes appetizer, entrée, dessert and a drink. You can find them at Carrer de Sicilia 285, just 6 minutes from the Sagrada.
Finally, the Sagrada Familia receives millions of visitors every year as post-COVID they’re not doing walk up tickets these days – they were long and boring anyway – so make sure you book your tickets in advance:
